Today's Quotes

just some er..wisdom from stuff I have read on line today

"James Madison, the father of our Constitution, who said, "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."

Sure looks like the founders of our country intended a welfare state and nationalized healthcare - yep sure do!

"To expect innovation without support is hallucination."

Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.
- Charles Mackay

"The Mets have set an all-time franchise ticket sales record of 3,863,542 for the final season at Shea Stadium, marking the third consecutive year the club has broken its previous mark....

The Mets this year are averaging 50,671 fans through 53 home games, for a total attendance of 2,685,582. That puts them on pace to eclipse the 4-million mark for the first time in team history.

The Mets drew 3,853,949 fans to Shea last year. They will begin play in new Citi Field starting next season."

"Squarely in the winners column in the aftermath of the Brett Favre trade is SNY, which offers plenty of Jets-related programming but last season was stuck with an awful, eventually irrelevant team.

Not anymore! Well, the Jets still might be awful, but they're not irrelevant.

SNY staffers plan to take a break from celebratory dancing in the newsroom to produce a special edition of "Jets Nation" to be seen at 6:30 p.m. today.

Earlier this afternoon the station will be busy with some sort of baseball game. They still play baseball in New York? Who knew? We're a football town now! Sort of."

well that's all the remaining functioning brain cell can handle - good night!
